S ELEVATION: 3-bay. Boldly pedimented and architraved door at centre; panelled door. Depressed carriage arches flanking, blocked as windows. 3 square 1st floor windows.
Single storey side additions of 2 different dates, comprised of coped walls to N elevation, 1 in rubble, 1 in ashlar, each with windows; modern lean-tos to S. 1st floor windows inserted later in main coach house, breaking eaves in swept dormerheads.

The unpretentious dignity of the design could be attributed to the artisan-classical style employed. For further information on St Germains, see St Germains House. B Group with House, Cottage and Dovecot.
